Hello there,
I figured @WBahn would appreciate this as he always talks about how important the specifying of units is.
This was found on another website and this 'manual' or whatever it was had a gross error.
Using that formula for N would result in a core requirement over 6 times as really needed. Imagine using a transformer with cross sectional area of 6 square inches instead of the required 1 square inch. Crazy.
The units of cm^2 agrees with Thomas and Skinner as well as other references.
